Pillar of the Truth

The Pillar of the Truth

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Much of Paul’s letters to Timothy deal with life in the church. It is important to understand that the church is not a building or a social organization. It is a representation of “the living God.”

This group of believers has a specific purpose and a role to play in the world: It is to be “the pillar and support of the truth.”

To impact the world, the church has to have an unwavering commitment to truth. This is not based on personal opinions or interests. It is truth that is defined in the person of Jesus, who is “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Without that commitment to Him, the church has no purpose or meaning.

Many people have wavered in this commitment to truth. Instead of being “the pillar and support of the truth,” they have become agents of compromise, more concerned with their personal desires or pleasing people rather than God.

Many reject the idea that there is just one way. In fact, some actually believe that there are many truths and many ways. But this is not what the Bible teaches.

Today, search your heart and mind. Make sure that you are free of compromise. Fill your life with God’s Word. Believe all of it, and put it into action. Make Jesus your Lord. Renew your commitment to serve Him. And be prepared to take a stand for truth.
